There were a couple server glitches this past week on the site, and I think they affected the private messages as well.  I saw a couple emails that I had pm's, but they aren't in my inbox now. So, if you sent me tracking numbers and I didn't acknowledge it, please send them again.  

 

Also, if you posted here that you received, please make sure your post is still up.  

 

And, please please be sure to post here when you receive, even if you are not planning to open until Christmas.

 

Thanks y'all!

I returned to work today, and my ornament was waiting at my office!  It's a beautiful Christmas door that says "Christmas At Home".  My person also threw in some peanut clusters (my favorite) and packed them in a super cute Christmas box.  I love it all, and I thank you so so much!

We have 1 week left to ship.  

 

Personally, I'm waiting on 1 thing to be delivered then I'll get mine in the mail.

 

I still haven't bought my cards yet, but I promise I will get them out before Christmas :).

Well according to what everyone tells me they haven't done well in 58 years (I'm not even close to that old) I hold out hope every year will be the year and then I end up bummed.

Well they have the highest paid quarterback and the best kicker in the league so there’s always hope they’ll turn things around. *fingers crossed *. Atleast that’s what I keep telling myself. Lol

My Secret Santa went all out!  I am so happy with everything!  I received: Sweat Pea lotion, Dr. Teal's bubble bath, a good smelling cinnamon candle, an OU coaster (Boomer Sooner!), peanut clusters, a magnetic note pad, HOMEMADE COCOA!, and an adorable cocoa mug.   I cannot wait to try the cocoa.  Thank you SO SO much!

LOL - I hold out hope every year too...unfortunately it takes more than one or two good players to carry a team. (both of which had bad days yesterday)  Hopefully his hand isn't hurt too bad from yesterday.

I had more Christmas cards in today’s mail than bills. That’s always nice! Didn’t win on the lottery ticket but it was a nice surprise. Thanks!

Got the last thing I needed for the SS box. Hoping to scrounge enough packing material from work to pack it all up nice tomorrow. Will keep you posted, Bopeep. :)


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

I finally have my cards ready to go.  I just have to go get some stamps.

 

 

Speaking of the cards, this guy: http://forums.gottad...read/?p=1359003 asked for the address list for the cards back on 11/14, and that was his one and only post on GD.  Does anyone else think that's weird?
